Stop Target's "Modernization Plan"

Stop Target's "Modernization Plan"

Sign this petition to let Target executives know we Target team members demand the Modernization Plan be stopped!

Why is this important?

Target has rolled out a new plan called "Modernization" which is turning our jobs into Amazon jobs. New metric systems to monitor our movements and progress, time limits with the threat of disciplinary action, and unrealistic workloads which team members cannot fulfill, setting us up for failure and creating an incredibly stressful experience where we live under the constant threat of "coachings" for not meeting these unrealistic expectations.

Target tries to justify this on the basis of raising our wages, but Target also has slashed our hours so we actually have less time to do even more work. This makes Target more money and gives us less despite the wage being raised. This is what Amazon has done with their recent wage increase to $15 an hour.

We want a stop to the "Modernization Plan" so we can give our community members the full attention they deserve when they come to our stores. We need more workers on the salesfloor, more workers on the registers, and end this ridiculous multitasking that stretches us too thin and upsets our community members who can't find workers to help them find the items they need.

Reasons for signing

  • In theory it sounds great but it's super stressful on the employees. Definitely feels like a lot of unrealistic expectations. Strays, one for ones, answer calls, work freight, help guests, get called for backup, price change, and planograms. A lot of people are only there 5 hours, seriously how is it possible?
  • this plan isn't working and it is cutting hours. $15 an hour is great for sure but if you were 33-38 hours and now ar 23 hours it doesn't add up. Plus why not explain pla. To all team member rather than just TL and Store Director
  • Tired of this company failing to stand up for its workers who keep this company going!!
